Tuesday 5 August 2014 

Parents in Richmond are being invited to have their say on improving acute NHS care services for children and young people between the ages 0-18 years old. 

The trust’s children’s services team are encouraging local parents who live in the borough of Richmond and have at least one child under the age of 5 - to take part in the open focus group sessions and share their views and experiences of local health services.   

The team wants to hear about what parents and children 'like' or 'don’t like' about acute care services that they have used, so that improvements can be made and learning shared with the trust’s partner organisations. 

Local acute health services include the Walk-in Centre at Teddington Memorial Hospital; Urgent Care Centre at West Middlesex Hospital; local A&E departments; GP surgeries; pharmacies and NHS111. 

Nicola Young, paediatric nurse at Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare NHS Trust said: “This is your opportunity to share your experiences and thoughts about local NHS services for young children in the borough of Richmond upon Thames.  

“By getting involved and sharing your ideas about what you’d like to see introduced in the future - you will be helping us to improve care services for local children – so please do make your voice count!”
